    Yeah those ones. According to the Japanese SS12 release schedule those pants did not enter production :(.

    If the runway sample ever comes up for sale on eBay that would probably be the only way to nab one.

    The print on those pants looks crazy. Are some of the figures paler than others?

    Yup. It's all small circles and some are more complete than others.

    The close-ups on vogue are pretty nice -

    Looks like the placket is on the correct side for men's. Looks good too. :nodding:

    Now the wait for them to get here :happy:.

    Also, was it one of you guys that picked up the suspender jacket on eBay? Saw that it was gone when I went to check it out one more time.

    That SS07 suspender blazer is truly amazing. Many iterations with different fabrics, lapels and cuts. That blazer is Rex Woo's stuff. He trades on eBay under comma comma but he has a physical ' showroom ' in Hong Kong. That blazer may have been sold in the shop rather than eBayed. However sometimes he takes items off eBay if they are not sold and re-lists them after a while so watch out or ask him directly.

    ^^Ivwri, nice pickup. The cotton blends in this first segment of the show is apparently really nice. I'd like to get my hands on one of those pocket jackets sometime. I'm pretty sure that runway look is in black, the color just looks weird in the photo due to the lighting or something. So those should be the same ones as you picked up. I don't think these jackets were made in navy. Here's another shot of the same look (you have that shirt as well, just need the jacket now!, hehe):

    Ah I see. Yeah, now that I have seen the second pic asobu posted, it must have being lighting for sure. I DO have to look for the jacket now don't I? Hehe. Well, will see if it comes up anywhere. Looking for that belt as well.


    :wow: :drool: :slayer:

    Is it confirmed then?

    cool pants, ivwri! that whole suit combo is great, too. love the rectangular pockets.

    btw, I wish yohji made more stuff in navy (or gray). sometimes black is too severe for me... but I know it's his favorite.

    :marchal:

    Thanks!

    AW12 looks like the answer to your wishes; loads of navy, gray and red in there :D.

    Thanks for the tip kiko, will think about it. Looks great.

    Also davidlee thanks for the info on comma comma. Will shoot him a message once I get some spare dough so that if he does still have it or another iteration I can pick it up. Maybe I will get lucky and get the size 4 :devil:.
